Simmered Hijiki Sea Vegetable (ひじきの煮物)

I like simmered Hijiki. You can mix this with freshly cooked rice. Hijiki sea vegetable has lots of minerals and fibres.


  • Hijiki sea vegetable: 10 g
  • Carrot: 1/2 (approximately 70 g)
  • Deep fried Tofu: 1
  • Sesame oil: 1 tsp
  • Dashi powder: 1 tsp
  • Soy sauce: 2 tbsp
  • Sugar: 2 tbsp
  • Sake: 2 tbsp
  • Mirin: 2 tbsp


  1. Reconstitute Hijiki sea vegetables and rinse to remove dust and sands. Cut a carrot into very thin strips. Cut a sheet of deep fried Tofu into thin strips.
  2. Stir-fry Hijiki sea vegetables and the carrot with a frying pan.
  3. Pour in enough water to cover the ingredients to simmer over medium heat.
  4. When small bubbles pop out, add all condiments and cover with an aluminum foil.
  5. Simmer over medium heat until the broth is reduced.
